M3/M3GreatRiffs: Relentless comment spamming, artificial subscriber generation, via hundreds of dummy youtube accountsPosted: February 22, 2017
I’m sure you came across his comment from one of a few hundred youtube accounts, telling you he makes vlogs too, that he checked out your channel, then gave the video a like, or moved his channel. Unfortunately, it’s a load of crap. He never checked out your videos or channel, he never gave it a ‘like’ either.
More than likely that comment of his, quoted below, ended up in the “suspected spam” section of your comments area. It never publicly made it on your video, because well, it is in fact… Spam.
His two scripted comments:
Nice buddy, been checking out your stuff, I gave your vid here a like! You ing alright today? I do vlogs myself, if you wanna check them out, I’m trying to be pretty consistent with putting them out. They’re here: https://www.youtube.com/user/M3GreatRiffs keep up the good work!
That’s cool buddy, I gave you a like. You have some good vids, been watching for awhile. How long have you been doing the Youtube thing? I do vlogs myself, I’ve been trying to be pretty consistent. I had to move my channel, if you’d like you can check it out here:https://www.youtube.com/user/M3GreatRiffs Subscribe if you like me!
If you see any of the quoted comments above, just do a web search. You will be quite surprised by the sheer amount of accounts used (far more than what shows up) by him, and checking his channel out, he has far less views. That sums it up quite obviously.
Using deception and lies is the worst way to “gain” subscribers, and that is exactly what he is doing, along with paying for subscribers using a number of paid services, only 2-5% actually watch his videos, or just watched one and moved on.
Now for the last part: Call him out. I did so with four videos, and I haven’t seen anymore spam from him ever since. Besides that, I took it a step further to educate others who were mislead by his bots, by replying to their comments on his channel. He deleted them at first, then after I persisted (when he wasn’t online, it’s easy to tell) to reply again after he deleted them multiple times, he blocked me.
Anyways, that is all I gotta say about the guy. He won’t last, he won’t have real subscribers in the millions. He needs help, maybe a shrink. But I won’t go any further, I don’t believe in insulting him, and I shall move on.
